You can now use AWS Backup, an automated and centralized backup service, to protect EBS volumes and your other AWS resources. With AWS Backup, you can configure backups for EBS volumes, automate backup scheduling, set retention policies, and monitor backup and restore activity.

AWS Backup is a fully managed backup service that makes it easy to centralize and automate the back up of data across AWS services in the cloud as well as on premises. With AWS Backup, protecting resources such as Amazon EBS volumes is as easy as a few clicks in the AWS Backup console. Customers can configure and audit the AWS resources they want to back up, automate backup scheduling, set retention policies, and monitor all recent backup and restore activity. EBS volume backups managed through AWS Backup are stored as Amazon EBS Snapshots and can be easily restored for use with Amazon EC2.

AWS Backup is available in the US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) regions. For more information on where Amazon EBS and AWS Backup is available, see AWS region table. For pricing information in your region, please visit AWS Backup pricing page.
